Love and Fear is the new 11-song CD from Stockholm’s indie rock quartet Slim Loris. The quartet features Mattias Cederstam on both lead vocals and bass, Robert Barrefelt lead guitar, Leon Lindström rhythm and backing vocals and Jonas Ellenberg playing drums.
Leading off with a jangly “Never Danced Sober” we get Cederstam’s bass up front and Lindström’s perfectly placed harmony vocal. “Higher” follows with Barrefelt starting a simple riff and Cederstam’s acoustic and passionate singing. The chorus just floats with plucked notes, that riff again and Ellenberg’s understated simple beat.
First of all, Joe’s Pup is a stellar place to attend a concert or a small intimate Q&A/listening party, which this was. Lodge’s new album 10,000 Light Years Ago (his first solo album in 38 years!) is a lush 8-song achievement. It features some signature Moody Blue-isms (as well as Lodge bringing back two old Moody’s to play on the stand-out tune “Simply Magic” a song about his grandson) as well as country-influenced numbers, wrenching love ballads and some fiddle-stomping fun. All around this is a collection of songs that Lodge assured us are about his life, but not so much a looking backward as looking into the future.
